And you know what, K? While I find your rebuttle amusing I can still agree with you on that. By no means do I think so. Nino Brown is a drug dealers characterization in a general sense that I think most people can relate to.

Rick made a choice. In terms of the number of people that it harmed and the very nature of crack cocaine, I venture to say that it was not a good choice. "Getting by" That's that fiscal and physical detachment that I said that Black folk can not "afford".

K, I gotta lot of crosses to bear. Some of them light...some of them heavy. At this point and time, selling drugs is not one of them. And if the only factor for determining if I was a good person was based on that, then the answer is that I'm DAMN GOOD.

We both know nothing good comes from drug sale or use. Can't we agree on that as well? (come one now....we're (you and I) are having such a good day ;-)
